    If the house is in joint names you can not force him to go unless there has been violence or abuse, in which case you may be able to get an occupation order.
    You both have rights to your share of the equity and either, with agreement, can buy out the other.
    A lot will depend on whether there are children, whether you are married, what your respective incomes are, are you joint tenants or tenants in common, how long you've been together, who put in what etc etc etc
    No reliance should be placed on the above.

    or can he "force" you to leave
    If he leaves does he have rights to any equity released.
    Can he "force" you to sell or buy you out.
